Album Review

Lang, Peter – “Thing at the Nursury School… ” – [Takoma Records]

David Richoux   1/16/2005   A Library, CD

Nothing but solo 6 and 12 string guitar here – no vocals, no drums, no nothin’ but that does not mean this is a lightweight recording. The tunes seem to be improvised to a point but there is a lot of thought behind the improv. This was actually recorded back in 1972. Lang is a friend of John Fahey and the recording was produced by Kerry Fahey (could not find out the relationship, if any) coming out of the late 60’s folk/blues/jazz thang. Some of the longer tracks seem to drift off into another world, but I think you will like the trip… *review by David Richoux

Kerry Fahey says

I am not John Fahey's cousin. I am the world's only John Fahey's cousin impersonator. The real John Fahey's cousin was a manservant of Blind Joe Death until one day during the whiskey famine of '59 he wandered off across the cotton fields and never was met with again.

Ed Grey says

That comment from Kerry Fahey sounds like John from beyond the grave. Maybe it's from one of the absurdist forumistas at johnfahey.com from back when they used to have a forum though they don't now, ?nicht wahr?


Vera Stafford says

Hey, Fahey, I've been looking for you off and on for a while now. Where the hell are you? If you're the least bit interested in saying hi, let me know. My number is (805) 966-9557. Love VJ
